The Thriving Recluse | Alex Eagle

"I’ve been doing pilates for a while, but I’ve been upping it. Now’s a time to set goals you wouldn’t normally. Some people want to learn to cook, become more fluent in Italian. I would just love to feel super, super strong."

“I’m trying to do daily classes on Facetime with Amy Nelms from Flatiron Pilates. She’s a friend, but I usually only see her 1 or 2 times a year when I’m in New York. It’s a nice way to stay connected with her. We can’t be close to our friends these days, but funny enough I’ve never felt closer to them.”

“I set up a space by the window. I have my mat, my water. I put frankincense and lemon essential oils in the water—I do these little rituals. Sometimes I incorporate the kids, which is fun. I do a plank with Jack sitting on my back, or Coco passes me the magic circles. It’s just a nice way to be away from the noise and the news.”
